We joked about it in the post-game Google Hangout but the Hawks may have in fact got away with a late foul on Toronto's final shot attempt in Wednesday's 93-92 win over the Raptors. Following the game, Raptors head coach Dwane Casey sounded off on the officiating for repeated missed calls at the end of games:
"I'm tired of losing games because of missed calls at the end of games. I know the league is going to come down on me, but I don't care," said a seething Casey, smoke practically billowing out of his ears.
"These guys have fought their hearts out, played their hearts out and at the end of the game, we get cracked, (league sends out an) apology, go back to Canada. I've been in this league 18 years and I've never seen so many missed calls at the end of the game to cost us the game. We've got great officials in this league, and too good to miss calls and short-change young men like this. It's not right. I watched the replay three or four times, hoping that they (somehow made the right call) but they didn't," he said. "This is fourth time this year that we've been in this situation."
